  • Siri voice control that works with your model’s buttons
  • Apple Maps
  • Hands-free calling

  • iTunes/Apple Music connection
  • Access to Spotify, Podcasts, iHeartRadio, and more
  • Choice of Google Maps, Baidu, or Waze navigation

Android Auto:

Though they have some differences, they also have a lot in common. And in those similarities, drivers can stay informed, entertained, and safe on any road they trek.

How Are They Beneficial?

Drivers from White Plains, Cortland Manor, and beyond need a better way to access their favorite apps while keeping their hands and eyes on the road. With these applications, and the voice command function, doing this is possible. Listen to your favorite music, make a hands-free phone call, or get turn-by-turn directions all without having to take your eyes off the road.
